What is a Lincoln Log Sandwich?

Lincoln Logs (as seen on the Soprano’s) are apparently hot dog buns or white bread, in which you place hot dogs layered with cream cheese. They can be served warm or cold. They are also known as Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs, although the Lincoln Logs variety is said to be an East Coast version. Hot Dog Signage. Photo by Brock DuPont on Unsplash.

Every time there’s a reboot of The Soprano’s we always see this question.

So What’s Carmella’s Secret?

I was watching the Soprano’s and saw Carmella making a dish which she called Lincoln Logs. I am curious, what are they? They looked good, so how do you make them what are some of the ingredients?”

The Big Reveal

Lincoln Logs (as seen on the Soprano’s) are hot dog buns or white bread, in which you place hot dogs layered with cream cheese. They can be served warm or cold. They are also known as Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs, although the Lincoln Logs’ variety is said to be an East-Coast version. The basic recipe appears to be:

Directions

Starting with a slice of white bread, spread cream cheese along the length.

Split a cooked hot dog lengthwise and place each half, cut-side down, on the bread.

To get the “Lincoln Log” effect, you may need a second hot dog that is laid over the first in the opposite direction.

Note: some versions appear to mix a little mayonnaise with the cream cheese for spreading ease. You can lightly toast the bread or add a piece of American cheese before adding the spread and hot dog. Voilà!
