When it first arrived on American shores from Europe in the late 1800s, it was often referred to as a “Coney Island Sandwich” or “Frankfurter sandwich,” but much like an “ice cream sundae” is simply referred to as a sundae, terminology changes.

  • Yes a hot dog is a sandwich

    A hot dog on a bun is technically an open-faced sandwich. No it's not on two separate pieces of bread, but the bun is cut in a way to specifically emulate two pieces of bread while holding everything inside. An open-faced sandwich can be anything on top of a single piece of bread eaten as you would eat a normal sandwich

    So the real question isn't "Is a hot dog a sandwich?" The real question is "Is an open-faced sandwich a real sandwich?"

    If an open-faced sandwich isn't a real sandwich, then the hotdog still gets to be sandwich, just not a real sandwich. If an open-faced sandwich is a real sandwich (it has sandwich in the name), then yes a hot dog is a real sandwich

  • As Wikipedia defines it: "A sandwich is a food typically consisting of vegetables, sliced cheese or meat, placed on or between slices of bread, or more generally any dish wherein two or more pieces of bread serve as a container or wrapper for another food type."

    The keyword here is "slices of bread." In the article for "Hot Dog," it is said that it is "served in a partially sliced bun." PARTIALLY. If it is only partially sliced, then it is not sliced bread (which will result in "two or more pieces").

    So, a hot dog is perhaps partially a sandwich. One can argue that because the "seam" of the hot dog bun typically breaks in two while eating, it is a food rigged to become a sandwich, but this is not true because it is natural for a popsicle to melt into juice, but we don't call a popsicle "juice."

    A hot dog is NOT a sandwich, but it may become one during eating. At most, it is a partial sandwich due to its bun being "partial sliced bread."

    • lmfao!!! yeah we have to many god damn idiots in this world...

    • Show All
    • Indeed it is.

  • Nope, at least not in my country.
    Sandwich is a type of food made of meat (e. g salami) and/or cheese, with various condiments and vegetables, placed between two slices of bread, or on one slice of bread (if it's an open-faced sandwich).
    Hot-Dog is a wiener sausage in a bun (bread roll), usually with mustard or some other spicy condiment.

  • When you go anywhere that sells sandwiches and hot-dogs, do you ever see them listed under the same thing? I think not. Therefore hot-dogs are not sandwiches and people who say they are NEEDS to eat a sandwich before they eat my fist.

    • Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and Philly Cheesesteaks, and a lot of others are all, usually, on buns but considered sandwiches.

    • @altruistatheart Maybe in America but they're also (well most of them, I don't know what a Philly Cheesesteak is) are also eaten worldwide. I like the Australian version, it's nice & simple:
      Between two slices of bread - Sandwich
      In a pita or similar flat bread - Wrap
      Filling inside a bun - Bun
      Filling inbetween two bun halves - Burger

      I've also heard Americans tend to call chicken burgers (like say, the McChicken for example) chicken sandwiches, is that right?

  • Nope. Not unless you forgo the traditional hot dog bun for slices of bread. A sandwich is two or more slices of bread with a filling between them.

  • It is not, the two parts of the bread are not completely separated
    www.euroclassicimports.com/.../...buns-imports.jpg
    and although they may separate with movement, still no sandwich

    And if we talk about European buns, the answer is still no.

  • A hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog, no ifs or buts. There is nothing else it can be. It rules supreme. It is the omnipotent of foodstuffs. No sandwich could ever begin to emulate it. It stands proud in a league of its own. Did I say I like HOTDOGS.

    • I disagree. a hotdog on a tooth pick is an appetizer, a hotdog on a stick covered in corn meal is a carnival treat, A hot dog on a bun is a sandwich and a hot does stuffed in your but is a dildo. They are have distinct differences that set them apart, especially the last one

    • Are you perhaps muddling it with a horn dog?

  • Well of course it is. Any culture that does bread (leavened or otherwise) does sandwiches. I think what's more interesting is that every culture that I can think of does tube meat.

  • It's got bread on two sides of the meat in the middle. I think that qualifies it as a sandwich. Just because we usually have a special kind of bun for it wouldn't change that!
