Is a hotdog a sandwich or just a hotdog?!

Is a hotdog a sandwich? uwu


#2

There was a long thread about this a few months ago:


#3

damn, sorry im new :frowning:


#4

No problem! In a way, we’re all kind of new with the new forum software! :smiley:


#5

It is a sandwich


#6

It is in fact a taco.


#7

I mean, a very American taco, but I feel it fits that category better than that of a sandwich. Classic tacos just have harder bread-like material and more crushed up meat, and the condiments usually involve beans, lettuce, and tomatoes instead of ketchup, mustard, and onions.


#8

perhaps its an oreo?


#9

Could be sounds reasonable.

The definition of sandwich from Merriam-Webster Dictionary is " two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between".

If you have a piece of turkey, it is just turkey; but if you put it between some bread it is now a turkey sandwich. But if you have a hotdog, it is a hotdog; and if you put it in a bun it is still a hotdog. Therefore, because hotdogs can exist without being between bread, it is not a sandwich.


#11

I love how your definition seems to contradict your reasoning lol


#12

Looking back at it, it is misleading but not contradictory. The definition is filling between 2 pieces of bread, and a hotdog exists without the bread, making it not a sandwich. I am just going to stop rambling right now before this gets even weirder…


#13

See the way I read your definition would mean that a hotdog is a sandwich, since the traditional way of eating a sandwich involves bread with a filling between it (the meat)


#14

well, oreos are often referred to as “sandwich cookies”


#15

I’ve decided that a sandwich requires layer(s) of filling that is parallel with the bread.
Which tends to rule out hotdogs and tacos.


#16

I agree with @Tesla_XK. Because the hot dog is not defined by the bread and can even exist without bread, a hot dog is not truly a type of filling in a sandwich. This would mean that a hot dog in a hot dog bun would not be a sandwich and likely not even a taco. :sunglasses:

Just had this debate with 7532 Gophertronics on this one… results where inconclusive.

I don’t know how many of you guys eat a sandwich with the meat facing up, but I sure don’t, its not a sandwich.
