A hotdog is what we as humans have decided to call a length of beef (Or tofu if you're a vegetarian. I think. What do they put in vegetarian hotdogs?), that we have put inside a long piece of bread, and usually added condiments to. Could you call it a sandwich? Maybe, but you can definitely call it a hotdog.
In conclusion, a hotdog could be a sandwich, but it is irrefutably a hotdog.
First of all, The definition of sandwich is an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, Cheese, Or other filling between them, Eaten as a light meal. But a hotdog, Is one piece of bread not two, Which doesn't fit in the description of "sandwich. " Also, If a hot dog were to be considered as a sandwich, Why isn't society calling it a sandwich? If one were to walk into a fast food restaurant they wouldn't order a "sausage sandwich, " they would be ordering a hotdog. But if the hotdog were to be considered a sandwich, Think of the other foods that would be questioned: is cereal soup?
Hot dogs fulfill the requirements of a sandwhich.
1. You must be able to pick it up and eat it with your hands and without your hands touching the fillings. (If fillings ooze out it may be a bad sandwich, but it's still a sandwich.)
2. The fillings must be sandwiched between two discrete food items.
As you can see these requirements fulfill a hot dog. A hot dog is between 2 pieces of bread.
Like a sub sandwich, a hot dog is indeed just that: a sandwich. It doesn't HAVE to be between two separate pieces of bread, because we have already determined that a sub sandwich is a sandwich, and therefore the fact that a hot dog is in a bun is not a reason to count it out of the sandwich category. I've yet to see a valid argument against this. The way you prepare the filling has nothing to do with it. The toppings you do or do not use has nothing to do with it either unless you're talking about which type of sandwich it is.
To those saying that what makes a hotdog not a sandwich is the fact that the dog is not sandwiched between slices of bread, than what do you have to say to Subway and all subs? Aren't they sandwiches? I personally believe that most sandwiches have to contain processed meat and bread. Although this doesn't hold true for all cases such as PB and J, it is a general rule of thumb.
If you say yes you are saying yes it is a hot dog and yes it is a sandwich because there are two questions that counter each other. Also a hotdog only has one slice of bread, they are connected but sometimes fall apart because the inner ingredients are filling up the bun. By the way the question said is a hotdog a hotdog, well of course it is because that is the name of the dang little thing you shove up your own fat pie hole. PS what is the cube root of 74,088 answer is...................................... The meaning of life. Ask serie.
A sandwich is a piece of meat or other fillings in between TWO SLICES OF BREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD TWO SLICES OF BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD BREAD!! If you dont agree you are uneducated and need to rething your life k thnks bye
I believe that a hotdog is a sandwich. This is because a sandwich is meat in between bread. That is exactly what a hotdog is. So, I think meat between two pieces of bread should be called a sandwich, because that is what a sandwich is. Thank you for your time and consideration.
No a hot dog is not a sandwich! They are not made the same way. The meat is grilled or boiled. In the sandwich the meat is not cooked at all. That is a big difference. And because of there definition of sandwich they are not the same at all.
The definition of a sandwich is "sliced meat or deli meat with lettuce, tomato, onions, mustard, etc." a hotdog is just a chunk of meat and mustard or ketchup. No matter how much mustard you put on a hotdog it is not a sandwich. It's as simple as that. You are welcome.
A sandwich has contents encased in two slices of bread. The contents of a hotdog is a synthetic sausage. It can be looked at just like the elementary school math rule: all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares. Not all sandwiches are hotdogs, but all hotdogs are sandwiches.
I actually found this argument earlier and so I did a survey. Almost all of the people I asked said yes it is a sandwich because it is the definition of a sandwich anything between bread. So yes it is a sandwich ,Ive even asked a couple cheffs about it and they said the same thing sooo yea.
