    As long as it is made of real meat and real bread, probably yes.

    Wait - are you trying to say that an omelette is ALSO a sandwich?!?!?! This thread is getting interesting now. Right not I'm drinking my "cup of coffee sandwich" and reading my "internet sandwich" trying to stay from the "politics news sandwich" but I hadn't thought about having an omelette sandwich...

    If it's made of real meat and real bread, it's not a hot dog. Excuse me, I need to go practice my Telecaster Sandwich now.

    An omelette can be a sandwich if placed between two slices of buttered bread. Best served with the omelette still hot and with ketchup, salt and pepper. It's like a power food only tastier. I bet it would also taste great if a hotdog wiener was added to the Omelette sandwich.

    Once I was out of everything except hotdogs and hamburger buns. I made the kids a "burger dog". We now call everything a version of a "dog", burger-dog, taco-dog, Arby-dog, fish-dog, 'cue-dog, waffle-dog, etc.

    One of my favourites, it's virging on being a sausage roll though.

    The law clearly states that anything placed between two slices of buttered bread is called a sandwich.

    I don't have anything pithy to say or logic to prove it, but as far as I'm concerned, a hotdog is not a sandwich.

    A hot dog can be anything you want it to be; even a hockey stick.

    What if the bread is unbuttered?

    Wieners are but alienated FRANKFURTERS.

    A hot dog is too one-dimensional to count as sandwitch!

    Then its called whatever the food item is between two slices of bread. Imo Butter is required to confirm it's a sandwich.

    Definitive answer... yes!

    Any thing that is "sandwiched" between two of something else and is handheld and doesn't require cutlery... it's a sandwich.

    Bottom line.

    FTR: I disagree with that editor. Meat between bread = sandwich. Hence, a "hot dog" - not just the sausage, but the sausage on a roll - is a sandwich.

    Which leads to the question, is a hot dog sausage wrapped in a croissant a sandwich? This one strikes me as a "no."
