Is a hot dog a sandwich?

It seems like every year my coworkers at my second job debate this. I think it is a sandwich. You?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I'm glad in this moment of political tension we can all peacefully argue about something.

    • Funny you say that because I posted this to try to give this place a break from the repetitive stuff that's being posted here. I'm glad that something as simple as hot dogs has got people talking.

  • By definition I believe yes it is technically a sandwich

  • A hot dog is a weiner in a bun. It's a piece of meat surrounded by bread, additionally with condiments. It's a sandwich.

  • I believe it is a type of sandwich. Not a traditional one, but still belonging to the same family of foods.

    I'm sure many of you will disagree, but to me anything between bread, or wrapped in any other flatbed is a sandwich and also fast food. That includes wraps, burritos, burgers, tacos, donner kebabs, etc.

    • To me, it only qualifies as a fast food sandwich when it's made and bought at a restaurant. If I'm at home making it, it's just a regular sandwich.

  • No, because a hot dog bun has a hinge.

  • You might be correct, but I'm saying no as a means of comforting myself from this information

  • No a hotdog is not a sandwich, it's a long bread roll with a sausage in it (and in New York, sauerkraut and yellow mustard), they slip a sausage behind all these fancy ingredients, when in Australia a hotdog has ketchup, barbeque sauce, hot English mustard, or American mustard, or sweet chili sauce or hot chili sauce, nothing else added except perhaps butter, maybe some onions, and that's it. An Australian hotdog, which is very plain, although we now have chili dogs and hotdogs with cheese sauce in them, but I prefer a Swedish hotdog of just a sausage in a bun with Swedish mustard and that's it, you get this from Ikea.

  • A hotdog is sandwich-like.

  • Wait, you mean you guys don't put your hotdog between two pieces of bread?

    (Let the real chaos begin >=D )

  • This is a profound question which has troubled philosophers down through the ages. I refer you to the seminal work in the field entitled "Miksi olet penis ripustanut otsaasi?" by the preeminent Finnish philosopher Jussi Jääskeläinen.

    The consensus amongst food taxonomists is that the hotdog is a member of the order Impletur in the class Panem, a categorisation it shares with all other sandwiches where a filling is covered on both sides by bread.

  • No. A sandwich is utilising two slices of bread, a hotdog is consisting of a bun, or a disturbing, albeit mild, act of necrophilia.

    Duh 😒

    • But... what about ice cream sandwiches? They don't have bread.
      :)

      • Still using two seperate "breads" between a medium. I mean an earth sandwich is technically a sandwich. Or does it have to be edible to be a sandwich?

        • I’d call it a sandwich based on the style of bread, not something simply utilising any random type. Calling a hotdog a sandwich seems wrong even written in text.

          • Idk how you classify bread types. It's all bread but it's how you are suppose to consume it. I mean hardtack is a cracker but you tend to consume it like bread depending on what size the hard tack comes in (think a brick of saltine cacker that weighs as much as an actual brick) is it bread or is it still a cracker or is a cracker something that you need to have bite sized peices?

            • Well I do it on cut and filling, to me they’re all seperate things.

              A hotdog is a hotdog made using a hotdog bun.

              A roll is a roll made using a roll.

              A sandwich is a sandwich made using two slices of bread.

      • An ice-cream sandwich is only a sandwich by name. Not a true sandwich.
        Ice-cream sandwich is a type of sponge cake. And is still delishus 😋

    • Disagree!

    • By that rational a sub(marine) sandwich, or whatever regional coloquialism you prefer, is not a sandwich either?

  • A taco isn't a sandwich. And neither is an ice cream "sandwich." I believe bread makes it a sandwich. A hotdog is a sandwich.

  • No for the same reason a taco isnt a sandwich. Use a different bun with an intended purpose it becomes a seperate thing.

  • It can be. Cook em up all nice then slice them in half lengthwise to get the inside all caramelized and yummy and put a few between some bread. Dont forget the mustard!!!

  • Well technically it is because you put a sausage onto a bread.

    • Just because you put something inside bread doesnt make it a sandwich. Is a pig in a blanket a sandwich? There are more than one types of fillings between bread.

  • Of course it’s not a sandwich. If it’s sausages between 2 slices of bread it’s a ‘sausage sandwich’. A hot dog is a sausage jn a roll, totally different.

    • If you put a sausage between two slices of bread, it's a hot dog.
      This is because buns or "roll" what you call it is a type of bread.

      Thus a hot dog is a type of sandwich.
      A sausage sandwich is just a odd kind of hot dog.

  • If it's on or in between bread It's a sandwich!
