    Merrriam Webster says:

    We know: the idea that a hot dog is a sandwich is heresy to some of you. But given that the definition of sandwich is "two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between," there is no sensible way around it. If you want a meatball sandwich on a split roll to be a kind of sandwich, then you have to accept that a hot dog is also a kind of sandwich.

    Admiral Sir Edward Montague (a.k.a. The Earl Of Sandwich) agrees... and he invented it!

    So a hot dog is neither served on bread or a split roll. Since the definition clearly doesn't include "buns" is the case closed that a hot dog is indeed not a sandwich?

    A sandwich requires the food to be consumed between two slices of bread.

    A hot dog is a frankfurter embedded into a single bread roll: ipso facto and hot dog is not a sandwich

    Based on the description I'd suggest not going any deeper into this one...

    "Cake or death?"

    "I'll have cake, please!"

    "We're all out of cake."

    "I'll have the chicken."

    Never in my life have I heard a hot dog referred to as a "sandwich" - you're not from around here, are you? (By "around here" I mean planet earth)

    Some other compelling questions which we can put to rest:
    An omelette is not a sandwich.
    Toast with jam is not a sandwich.
    A roast turkey leg - you got it. Not a sandwich either.

    Not only that, none of the above are a taco, a plate of sushi, an ostrich, or my left sneaker. Glad we could clarify some issues this morning!

    Well, interesting.
    On restaurant menus they place (rollups, pita wraps, dogs) under "Sandwiches"
    Can we argue with them.

    Ever made an omelette sandwich? They are great with butter and ketchup, salt and pepper.
