No, a Hot Dog is a sandwich. Sandwich Definition 2 a partially slit bread roll, pita, etc., with a filling.

My definition of a sandwich: -Must be sealed from the top and bottom by bread or something similar (open faced PB&J, toast , pizza, etc don’t count) -Mustn’t be rolled or folded (eggrolls, omeletes, tacos, and burritios don’t count) Hot dogs are tacos.

Unpopular opinion, Almond milk, cashew milk, and any other “milk” that doesn’t contain dairy, should be called juice. Because that’s literally what it is... almond juice 🙃

The ‘sandwich’ is a British invention which gets its name from the 4th Earl of Sandwich who, in the 18th century, had snacks consisting of a of beef between two slices of bread while gambling. His companions began to order food from wherever they were that was ‘the same as Sandwich is having’. Then the order shortened to ‘a sandwich’. Therefore, a sandwich in its original terminology is either a slice of beef between two slices of bread or a slice of meat between two pieces of bread depending on how lenient you are.

People have used the word "sandwich" too loosely and now nobody can agree on what it's actually supposed to mean. The only consistent characteristic is having bread with a filling or spread of some kind. Therefore, just about anything involving bread can technically be considered a sandwich, however impractical that may be for the purposes of communication. Just because something can be considered a sandwich doesn't mean it is best described as such. If you try to pin down a more specific definition of a sandwich you would inevitably come across exceptions that would require a new definition to be categorized properly. Open-faced sandwiches have to be the biggest offenders for what ruined the definition of a sandwich.

So.... Subway also doesn't sell sandwiches, because they start with one piece of bread? Or if I accidentally break the hot dog bun into two pieces, it suddenly becomes a sandwich? Or maybe this is just a stupid question to ask?

I don’t put butter on my sandwiches I just have bread and whatever I fill it with so is that not a sandwich? I have never had so many bread related questions

A bun is two pieces of bread attached together. A hot dog is a sandwich. Same reason why a sub is a sandwich.

But technically everyone’s wrong then because a bun is not two pieces of bread it’s one piece of bread with an opening in the middle ergo the definition saying meet between two pieces of bread does not qualify a hotdog
