A Hot Dog Is Not a Sandwich. A Burrito Is.

22 posts in this topic

True, a hot dog is not a sandwich, but a hot dog in a bun is.

 

In the English speaking world a sandwich is defined as follows:

Definition of sandwich

1a. two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between : 

1b. one slice of bread covered with food

 

2. something resembling a sandwich; especially :  composite structural material consisting of layers often of high-strength facings bonded to a low     strength central core

 

So by that definition a hot dog in a bun is a sandwich.

As I don't suppose sliced bread was around during the 4th Earl of Sandwich's time (1718-92), I guess that any two pieces of bread with a filling slapped between them technically constitutes a sandwich or sarnie, so yes, a hot dog is a sandwich, as is a <spit> Macdonalds <spit>.

As that is only one piece of bread, I'd say that it isn't.

 

What if I break the bread in two and put half on each side?  Does that make it a sandwich?

Is it a Sandwich if you have No Buns and just fold a slice of bread around it?

 

Sounds like a wish sandwich to me.

 

That's when you have two slices of bread and you wish you had something in between!   :)

McDonalds is a corporation, not a sandwich.

When I was a kid, we called that a "half a' sanwitch".

 

A burrito is an undocumented sandwich.

 

A burrito is an illegal sandwich if it contains burros.

 

(Or burrito could be an affectionate nickname for a little burro)  :D

Kraft gave up vegemite when it split with Mondelez, and Mondelez just sold vegemite back to an Australian company, Bega Cheese.

Smart move by Kraft. The saying goes "you either love Marmite/Vegemite or you hate it". I don't think that Americans could even begin to understand it. :D
