Oh wow it's almost like we should have different names for different things... oh wait we do. A human is a human, and humans live. Dogs are dogs, and dogs live, so dogs are humans because both are living creatures that live just like how anything in or on bread makes in a sandwich, apparently. This stuff is as stupid as this comment, honestly.

I mean... even by colbert's definition a hotdog is not a sandwich, a sandwich is between two pieces of bread by the loosest sense. As such a hotdog is a sub by all accounts, which is a piece of bread that's cut partway through and stuffed with things. A quesadilla isn't between two pieces of bread, so not a sandwich, it's between two other TYPES of a grain, but they aren't bread. An open faced sandwich is not a sandwich. If I start calling a donut a hamburger, and it catches on, it's still not a hamburger. However, if you put a person's head between two pieces of bread you can make a perfectly good idiot sandwich as Ramsay proved.

If matpat wants to continue to dance around definitions and ignore the "two separate slices" part which would mean by that definition a hotdog is not a sandwich, then I recommend anyone who actually cares about this question should look into the cube rule of breading, depending on which sides of the cube is occupied by breading means that food is classified as a pizza, a sandwich, a taco, a suchi, and even a calzone. Because a hotdog is surrounded on 3 sides (the sides and the bottom) in this specific shape means it's a taco. Matpat, you need to stop taking the flat earther method of making up evidence to prove your preconceived notion that a hotdog is a sandwich

6:51 is there much point using a USDA opinion? It mentions biscuit, which to the English would be a savoury scone, whereas a biscuit here is what you call a cookie. I certainly wouldn't call meat inside a scone a sandwich. Of course you go ahead and explain why that definition was wrong anyway, but I wanted to say this anyway. 15:29 pretty circumstantial here. Is a hot dog where the bun split but they still used it suddenly a sandwich but not if it's just a bun cut not all the way? I've had many hot dogs where it's two slices, not having it buttered is personal preference, I certainly like it, calling a hot dog not thin is just plain dumb, how is it not a thin piece of meat? Or is a steak sandwich suddenly not a sandwich too? Sauce can be spread between the buns too, again, preference. Seems you're using a warped American view of the hot dog here to justify it not being a sandwich. Hot dogs aren't even American.

What about bread that is baguette shaped cut in half, it is not 2 slices if there is a little part still uncut, but can define as a sandwich, also even does the topping sit on the side of the wiener of a hot dog, if looked at horizontally with the wiener pointing right, it is now not havig layers, but one layer with more toppings on the side, BUT THAT A THEORY A FOOD THEORY, THANKS FOR READING

Well the man was asking a judge to make a judgment, she needs a definition. She is not there to define a sandwich, she was put there to judge. She was given the definition, she passed her judgement. If you are not satisfied with the outcome I'd say it's more the fault of the definition than that of the judgement.

Also let’s not forget about the sausage sandwich the tradition the inventor of the ‘Red hot dachshund’ when he made it. Also that’s why the sandwich is also called a ‘Redhot’ or ‘hot dog’ none of this is covered in the show. Nor the fact that there are other sausage sandwiches where the sausage like the iconic one from Chicago. Not gonna lie kinda disappointed in this one. Just feel like it was less research and more just fishing around to try to prove a bias.

I mean yeah a pizza could be a sandwich, I actually take the slices of it and fold them, and before anyone says, a sandwich shouldn't be defined by having a whole piece of bread either, because as pizza can be sliced and so can sandwiches.

Is a pie a sandwich?
Indomitus1973 Vor 14 Stunden
It's not a yes or no question. What would be needed is a subset of classifications. Sandwiches, wraps, subs, open-faced or not, etc. We would have to start categorizing the fillings as well, condiments vs substance. You can put mustard between two pieces of bread, but is that really a sandwich? Can I just place to pieces of bread together by themselves? Consider: 1. If you take all the ingredients of a burrito, but instead of rolling it you place it all between two flat pieces of pita bread. Is that still a burrito? 2. Would a Sloppy Joe count as a burrito? 3. If I put PB&J on a hot dog bun, what have I just made? 4. Does it matter if the bread is leavened or not? (I believe it's important to the classification.) Is it flat and solid or risen and fluffy? 5. Breaded foods don't count because the bread has to be a separately-prepared component. 6. Is it a single piece of bread wrapped around, or multiple with ingredients between them? If I slice up a hot dog and put it on regular bread, that would definitely be a sandwich.
TurtlePlays52 Vor 7 Stunden
My definition of a sandwich is something that is held by another thing when eaten to stop the touching of the first thing by this definition and my other believes 1. I don't believe so because the burrito heavily involves on it being a roll. 2. I've never had a sloppy joe but I wouldn't consider it a burrito as it seems to just be a burger 3. I think it would be a sandwich using the bun as the second thing in my definition. I wouldn't consider it a hot dog as it isn't using a hot dog as hot dog usually refers to the meat inside. 4. Since I have a broad definition of a sandwich i don't think leavenedness matters. 5. This one really isn't a question but that's true, on my definition its because the bread doesn't usually stop the other things getting on you. 6. I think a wrap is a a sandwich and multiple fillings aren't nesacary. For the top questions, mustard between bread is definitely a sandwich, too pieces of bread by themselves is not because the connection doesn't serve a purpose. These are all my opinions though, tell me if you disagree.
