The only problem i have is you saying by definition then not going by definition. By definition a hotdog bun is one piece of bread. But once again you hust steam roll you main point as if no one else is making another point. You just keep going off on why its logically two pieces of bread when by definition its one.

Yes, I concede the point unless you consider a bun a decapitated piece of bread, which I do.

Who the heck eats hotdogs with two pieces of bread?

By definition and by the way a normal human eats hotdogs are not a sandwich.
You can be decapitated without your head falling off. Hear me out:

The bread is two pieces of bread, hung together for convenience. It is essentially two pieces of bread that are connected. If you decapitate a person at the spine and their head hangs from skin and sinew, they are still decapitated.
Absolutely morbid way of making a great point
Not really correct, though. "Decapitation" is the complete separation of head from body. Internal decapitation is when your skull separates from your spine (essentially), but is still connected. They are not necessarily the same thing, despite similar nomenclature. Related, but not necessarily the same.

This, of course, has no bearing on the actual discussion at hand. Do with it what you will.

If you put meat, toppings, and condiments in between bread, it's a sandwich. That bread can be traditional sliced bread, a roll, or a bun.

A burger is technically a sandwich. If you were to take out the ground beef patty, and put in lunch meat, it wouldn't become a burger. A hotdog is the same if you have it with a bun. If you replaced the dog with ham, it isn't still a hotdog.

The hotdog itself is just a type of meat. It's the same as turkey, ham salami, hamburger, etc. On their own, they are all of those different things. Once they are put between bread, sandwich.

Is a tortilla taco a sandwich then?

No. A tortilla is not bread. Similar concept, slightly different execution.

Depends on who you listen to in regards of what bread is. But tortilla is reffered to as unleavened bread.

What if you use a single piece of bread?

If this is a sandwich (and it is)



and this is a sandwich (and it is)



then the bun vs sliced bread argument is effectively nullified.

It's not in America and that's the only place that matters.

Hotdog is like a miniature sub rather than a sandwich.

But really it's its own thing entirely.

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut continues his reign as the chowing champion at the annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous in New York. The San Jose, California, man beat his own record to log a 10th win. He downed 72 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes Tuesday, besting Carmen Cincotti, who ate 62.

Chestnut downed 70 franks and buns in 10 minutes last year, topping his record at the time and taking back the title from Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie. Stonie came in third on Tuesday, with 48 franks and buns.

Isn't "sub" short for "submarine sandwich"?


Regardless, it is a weird debate. I think the whole point is that hamburgers/subs and a few other things like that are pretty universally believed to be "sandwiches", but hotdogs are kinda different so people make a big deal about it.

Plus it gets weird because just there's really no distinction between a hotdog (just the "meat" part) and a hotdog (the whole thing with bun/condiments). Like with a hamburger its meat part is a hamburger patty.

And I guess the biggest thing is what you would think of as a sandwich. When you hear that word, you don't think of a hotdog, or a sub or hamburger for that matter. So, really, its just pointless because trying to keep consistent logic leads me to say that pretty much everything is a sandwich. So idk.

What I do know is that a lot of my family members put a slice of cheese in the bun before the dog, and that's weird. Also, I like Turkey hotdogs much more than other varieties, which might make me the devil.
