Is a hot dog a sandwich?

It’s time to start debating whether a hot dog is a sandwich

For the record, I'm on the side of a piece of mystery meat rapped in bread is a sandwich, but I'd be more than happy to listen to anyone who doesn't agree.

Hotdogs, yum! Funny how even though we know hotdogs are filled with the nasty body parts, including, but not limited to, pretty much every orifice on a pig, we still love those things! Basically subtract all the tasty parts then grind up the rest and stuff into a casing!

"May I take your order?

"Yes, I would like two of your ground up pig orifices on a bun. Can you include in some ground chicken beaks and feet also?"

The Story of the Sandwich

Quote:
Would you believe that Americans eat more than 300 million sandwiches a day? That’s right, every day we consume about as many sandwiches as we have people to eat them. And why not? The sandwich might be the perfect food: portable, open to any interpretation and as simple or as elaborate as the mood permits. The sandwich has a long history, but it hasn’t always been as embraced in America as it is now. It’s hard to imagine, but the sandwich was once thought of as a symbol of a colonial past that most patriotic Americans wanted to forget.

The sandwich as we know it was popularized in England in 1762 by John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Legend has it, and most food historians agree, that Montagu had a substantial gambling problem that led him to spend hours on end at the card table. During a particularly long binge, he asked the house cook to bring him something he could eat without getting up from his seat, and the sandwich was born. Montagu enjoyed his meat and bread so much that he ate it constantly, and as the concoction grew popular in London society circles it also took on the Earl’s name.

Of course, John Montagu (or rather, his nameless cook) was hardly the first person to think of putting fillings between slices of bread. In fact, we know exactly where Montagu first got the idea for his creation. Montagu traveled abroad to the Mediterranean, where Turkish and Greek mezze platters were served. Dips, cheeses, and meats were all “sandwiched” between and on layers of bread. In all likelihood Montagu took inspiration from these when he sat at that card table.

Side note: The Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) were also named in honor of the same Earl of Sandwich.

Quote:
The second Earl's great-grandson was The 4th Earl of Sandwich, who was a prominent statesman and served as First Lord of the Admiralty and as Secretary of State for the Northern Department. Lord Sandwich is also remembered for sponsoring the voyages of discovery made by Captain James Cook, R.N., who named the Sandwich Islands in his honour, and as the namesake of the sandwich.

Never ever ever put ketchup on a hot dog. It's sacrilege. Mustard is the only sauce worthy of adorning this tasty treat.

I always have both ketchup and mustard. And fried onions. It's not a hot dog without fried onions.

Oh, and a hot dog is not a sandwich. That's why it's called a hot dog and not a sausage sandwich. A sausage sandwich is something entirely different.
