• Hot Dogs are a type of sandwich!

    1) two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between
    2) one slice of bread covered with food
    The word hot dog refers either to the sausage that you buy squeezed in a plastic package with 7 or so of its kind, or to the same sausage heated and served in a long split roll.
    When it's served in the roll, it's also a sandwich.
    We know: the idea that a hot dog is a sandwich is heresy to some of you. But given that the definition of sandwich is "two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between," there is no sensible way around it. If you want a meatball sandwich on a split roll to be a kind of sandwich, then you have to accept that a hot dog is also a kind of sandwich.
    You could hinge your anti-hot-dog-as-sandwich argument on whether the hot dog sausage qualifies as a "filling," but if you choose to interpret filling narrowly as only "a food mixture used to fill pastry or sandwiches," rather than broadly as "something used to fill a cavity, container, or depression," then you're not going to allow any single-item filling to qualify a food item as a sandwich—which means there can be no thing as a peanut butter sandwich or a bologna (or even baloney) sandwich.
    Hence, a hot dog is a sandwich.

  • Yes of course a hot dog is a sandwich

    I sandwich is a piece of bread with some kind of content between it like meat with cheese or tuna or chicken anything. You can but a person between two people and people STILL call it a sandwich why can't a hot dog have the same title as people doing the same thing. A hot dog is a type of meat(s). Just like ham. You can always use bread as a hot dog bun and I like to use hot dog buns for sandwiches it doesn't matter really just because it's name is different doesn't mean it can't be what it TRULY IS. Thank you for reading this, Goodbye.

  • Fire is not burnt

    To have a sandwich. . . One must need a piece of bread, Sliced partially or wholly through, And any combination of meat, Cheese, Or vegetable. Hot dogs are considered a meat, And the submarine variety of bread that is commonly used in conjunction with the hotdog is sliced partially throughout. Therefore meeting the criteria to be what is considered a sandwich. You could say that a hotdog is a submarine, But a submarine is considered a sandwich.

  • Yes a hot dog is a sandwich.

    The dog is between the two pieces of bread. It's meat. It has the sauce and stuff. So... Why shouldn't it be called a sandwich? The definition of sandwich is... "An item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them, and it's eaten as a light meal."... That was actually taken from a dictionary. The hot dog only has one piece of bread, but it surronds the hot dog as if it was two. The bread has meat, ketchup, mustard, relish, etc. between the two pieces of bread. It is eaten as a light meal. So, therefore, a hot dog is legally a sandwich.


    SANDWICH isn't included in the title of HOTDOG plus its a hot food so it cant count as a sandwich. Maybe a toasty or bap or whatever just not a sandwich. Try and think of a hot sandwich........ There isn't one!!! In conclusion, a hot dog is not a sandwich.

  • Nooooooooooooo it is not

    It's not a sandwich because a sandwich consists of 2 pieces of bread! Simple because who thinks that a hot dog is a sandwich when the definition of a sandwich is something consisting 2 or more pieces of bread. You are not going to break the bun and eat it like that because that is just dumb.

  • You forgot ONE simple thing. . .

    The hot dog, Itself, Is, In fact, Meat. Logically speaking, You need bread to make a sandwich and because the bun is a separate entity from the meat and the fact that this debate isn't about a hot dog on a bun being a sandwich, We can only logically conclude that a hot dog is, In fact, Not a sandwich.

  • Sadly NO because. . .

    Hot-dogs are not a sandwich because they only have one piece of bread. In conclusion Hot-dogs are not a sandwich because they only have one piece of bread. I mean would you call a chicken wrap a sandwich no, How about a burrito no that is because they only have one piece of bread, Why would hot-dogs be an exception.

  • Hot dogs are in their own class

    Hot dogs are not sandwiches just like tacos are not. Hot dogs exist in their own class. As do tacos.

    "Hot Dog: An item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with a filling between them, eaten as a light meal." - Oxford English Dictionary

    Do hot dogs have two pieces of bread? No. Therefore, they are not sandwiches.

  • Legally a hot dog isn't a sandwich

    While one may think it counts as one, the FDA doesn't classify hot dogs as sandwiches. This is due to the open faced nature of the hot dog. However the FDA does include wraps and burritos as members of the sandwich family, as they are not open faced. In conclusion, Hot Dogs are not sandwiches.
