Obviously not.

And it's "hot dogs", no apostrophe.

You've stumbled onto something bigger than you realize sir. I suggest you take your theories and go home.

What are you talking about? He's obviously talking about the gentleman's club "Hot Dog's", which, need I remind you, is not an open-faced sandwich.

I refuse to accept the concept of an open-faced sandwich.

So, no.

So stuffed french toast is a sandwich? You're "bread around blah, blah - fart noise -" theory is bullshit.

Firstly that's french toast not bread. Secondly it has jam on the outside of the bread making it a desert or pudding. Otherwise bread and butter pudding would be a sandwich and we know that isn't the case. Theory back on track - but your querys and questions are welcome. I will be publishing a paper in next months Science Now which will explain in more detail about my theory and the work behind it.

I think sandwiches with toppings can be classified under open sandwiches, although that does assume that anything on top of a piece of bread is an open sandwich.

I think it's a lot more complicated than bread around some shit anyway -- is a Double Down sandwich a sandwich? Is an Oreo cookie a sandwich? If I hold two pieces of bread around me, would I be a sandwich?

Double down is not a sandwich, it's a chicken dish. An oreo is a sandwich cookie. It's not really a sandwich, it's primarily a cookie with sandwich characteristics. A hot dog is not a sandwich. Unless you wrapped bread around you with the intent of consumption, you are also not a sandwich.

If you flip a hot dog in a bun on its side, does it become a sub sandwich?

@dystopiax: Damn, that was quick.

By the way, I just found out that there is legal precedence regarding the definition of a sandwich in the U.S. court. A burrito is not a sandwich, and a sandwich is required to have two pieces of bread surrounding the filling.

I'm starting to doubt open-faced sandwiches' membership in the sandwich classification. I think a hot dog has to be either a sandwich or an open-faced sandwich, but not both.

edit: changed the link to a better one.

edit again: But then, this guy has a point...

Those are more persuasive points than the dictionary’s definition, and as is often the case, the court got the definition wrong. (Scalia and Garner miss this, too.) A sandwich does not have to have two slices of bread; it can have more than two (a club sandwich) [...]

A hot dog by itself is just a sausage. But hotdog on a bun is a sandwich. Meat + bread = sandwich my friend. But a hotdog is NOT open faced because it is flanked by bread. Open faced means one piece of bread with your shit piled on top.

.. . I'd like to go to a Weinerschnitzel, stare the girl in the face and say, "I'd like a Chicago style open-faced sandwich, please. Don't skimp on the mustard, gurl.."

A subway sandwich is still a sandwich, even though they never slice the bread all the way through.

That was...profound. Settled the argument for me!

I think a hotdog in bun is more like a pita than a sandwich, it's more pocket-like than 2 pieces of bread-like.

#64 Posted by shinboy630 (1140 posts) -

I think the core argument here is whether "open-faced" sandwiches are really sandwiches at all. I mean, to me, a sandwich is between two or more pieces of bread, and open-faced sandwiches do not fit that requirement, and therefore are a separate classification all together! My point here is, a hot dog may be an open-faced sandwich, but that does not automatically make it a proper sandwich.

#65 Posted by FonkyMucker (150 posts) -

And open face hotdog sandwich is when you put the sausage on a slice of bread because you forgot you had no buns.

Hmm, I don't know. There might be too much fold to consider it open-faced. If you pour some gravy over it, I might consider it.

There are a few rules to a sandwich:

-a baked bread component (single, double or multiple slice)

-a meat or dairy (or a veggie substitute)

-it's meant to be eaten with your hands

To be considered a sandwich you must contain 2 of the 3 things.

Discuss.

If you take the makings of a sandwich, put it on ONE slice of bread, and then fold that bread in half, is it a hot dog?

Oh wait, is that what an open faced sandwich is? Did I just essentially rephrase the thread title?

Assuming that that is true, a meat burrito is a sandwich as it fulfills criteria #2 and #3. It's been legally concluded that a burrito is not a sandwich. Therefore, I don't consider that premise to be true.

I think one of criteria #1 and #3 is necessary, while #2 is not. A sandwich does not have to be savory, but it has to be sandwiched by a bread component or meant to be eaten by hand (or both, of course).
