Heat a small, non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and then the onions. Sauté until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue cooking for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are caramelized.
For each sandwich, spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on one slice of bread. Spread a thin layer of cranberry sauce on the other slice and sprinkle with pepper. Place 5 sage leaves over the cranberry sauce, followed by 2 slices of turkey and 1-1/2 slices of cheese. Top with a thin layer of caramelized onions and place the slice with mayonnaise on top. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Heat a grill pan on medium-high heat. Grill each sandwich 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted, placing a metal lid on the sandwich to press it down.
Remove the crusts and cut each sandwich into 4 rectangular pieces. Serve hot.
