Are Hotdogs Sandwiches?

Recommended Posts

No.

  A hot dog is not a sansienc and neither is a taco or a burrito or a hamburger or a falafal. A hot dog is round cylindrical meat on a bun.  A hot dog is not sliced meat on a bun. Sliced meat on a bun is a sub sandwich and even meat balls on a bun is a sub sandwich. Sometimes if you don't have any buns, a hot dog can be made with one slice of bread wrapped around the  hot dog but it's still not a sandwich by virtue of being made with bread.

A Hamburger is more of  sandwich than a hot dog is but it's still not a sandwich. It's a hamburger.

And that's Because Words Mean Things.

In Los Angeles where there is much strange and exotic food such as Tommyburgers and pink's chili dogs, they have something called an Oki-dog. It's two hot dogd wrapped in a flour tortilla surrounded with chili, onions and mustard. It was created by Okinawans which is why it's called an Oki-dog. it is a great delicacy but it is not considered a hot dog or a sandwich. It's more of a burrito.

No. The words "hot dog" and "sammich" shouldn't be in the same sentence with the exception of this sentence.

If flies didn't have wings, would they be called walks?

 

 

BTW, I love hot dogs.  Because of frequent business dinners, I eat a lot of "fancy" foods so for my birthday dinners, I always ask for hot dogs.  🙂

Looks like a soft shell taco to me.

FYI; hard shell tacos are a gringo invention and not tolerated South of the Rio Grande!!

No. A sandwich is flat piled up with layers of goodness that can get piled in layers as high as you want it with multi layers of bread if you want..  A hotdog is round and you smear crap along the bun and that's it.

Call it what you want; A good crunchy hotdog in a steamy bun with all the right condiments, is one of my favorite foods.

OH!  I just got in from snow blowing the driveway and the patio.  I claim "cookie rights, by virtue of work ethic!"

 

They do sound good!

Yes. If a submarine, hoagie, hero, etc. is a sandwich; so is a hot dog. 

If they were a sammich they wouldn't call them submarine, hoagie, hero, etc.

Food in a folded piece of bread is a taco.

Food wrapped up in bread is a burrito, not a "Wrap."

Merriam-Webster is full of ****. A hotdog is a hotdog is a hotdog. That's why they're called hot dogs and not tube steak sandwiches.
