That's going to be a whole other swell cast is what you put on your hot dog and what belongs on a hot dog. But today it's just is a hot dog a sandwich? I mean, I this I don't have a direct answer for you. That's why I'm asking

This might not be the only time I respond to this. So for now, I'm going to say hot dogs quesadillas Pizza Pockets, not sandwiches. They are their own special kind of food. Is a wrap a sandwich? A wraps, a wrap? I don't know. See, I'm going to go crazy with this and I could talk for well over five minutes. Might as well kill it. But what do you think? Are you, like, torn like I am?

Um, Renee, thank you so much for participating in this conversation. Hard question, isn't it? Hard question? Yeah. I mean, in the bun, hot dog is just one. It's just one bread. Piece of bread. I guess a wrap is one piece of bread. A quesadilla is two. Unless it's one, then you fold it over a yearo. G-Y-R-O greek pita with I mean, that's just one piece of bread also. Oh, my gosh

You, Adam? Adam yeah, it's a meal. And I'm gonna bring up in another podcast swell cast toppings of a hot dog. Because toppings of a hot dog can get pretty interesting, don't you think? As for if it's a sandwich, do you say, I want a hot dog sandwich. Do you say, I want a hamburger sandwich? Do you say you want the Euro a sandwich?

You. Hi Jordan. So to answer the question, yes, a hot dog is a sandwich. If I go to my local pizza placedeli because, you know, the menus are so varied. Now, under sandwiches, a hot dog is listed as well as what would you call it? There's a place, it's kind of like a side cop type of grill place that of course sells hot dogs. Why wouldn't they? And it's listed under sandwiches

You, Auntie Ange. Thank you so much for your input. I appreciate it. So you must be in the Northeast if you have Cumberland farms. And the reason for the hot dog sounds like a you problem, not a me problem. Cumberland farms have pretty good hot dogs. I have to admit, I used to in Maine. Good coffee, too. But not as good as Dunks. Dunkin Donuts is better up there than it is here. Even though I just drink my Dunkin Donuts black

If I had to also add to the question the answer to your question a preference is a sausage dog. I love me a good Italian sausage dog. Without the bread. Without the bread, it's so good. Hot dog, not so much. If I do a hot dog, you might see me one to two times out of the year and it has to be cooked on the grill and like burnt to perfection. It

I want to know how many you get back that are definitely on the sandwich wagon, because I don't know if we can be friends. I'm playing. I'm totally playing, but I love this topic. Thank you very much

I like a good pork chop and a Southern fried pork chop with some spicy vinegar on it served with some really great buttered grits. That's amazing. That's what I get. And it puts me to sleep. I'll get that on like a Saturday morning, and I'm asleep by Saturday afternoon because of it. And it is amazing. Yeah. As for this topic, you should listen to some of the responses because it's all around the board. You should look up Earl of Sandwich

You're. Oh, my God. I've been to Nashville before. Right there on that busy street where they are grilling outside and you got and it comes with it like bean salad, I think it is. Oh, my God, I will have to have that every time I would come to Nashville. And it comes in a little white stir foam. Oh, my God, it's so good. Nashville has a lot of good places to eat

Okay, I'll start with Lobbing. A question back at you. Why is it a chicken sandwich when it's the chicken between two pieces of bread or a bun? But a burger is not necessarily described as a sandwich. But to your point, I mean, if we're talking strictly meat between two pieces of bread yes, if we're talking about a light meal. If I mean, then it's very subjective, right? I mean, a quesadilla for some is a light meal

There is you know if you want to look at it is it? You could say that a caesar salad is a deconstructed caesar salad with chicken is a deconstructed chicken sandwich with caesar salad dressing on it. Ketchup is tomato puree. Yeah is a hot dog a sandwich is cereal soup. Interesting questions. Is an Oreo cookie or is it an oreo sandwich? Hello?

@JordanTepper

Okay, but now you're really messing with definitions. Because an oreo does not have meat between it. So can't be can't be a sandwich, although it's called that. So not only are these things all subjective, it's all a matter of how one uses various words. Not just cultural word usage, but also personal word usage. Hmm

They had chutneys and they had goudas, and they had all kinds of pickled this and that to put on top of them. So as much as I enjoyed the debate between the hot dog being a sandwich or not being a sandwich, my concern more is can we give the hot dog some more respect in this country?

You never know what you're going to get, quite literally, because you don't know what that hot dog is made out of unless it's a kosher dog. Out in Texas, you probably have colashes or colaches, however you pronounce it, and I like those, too. That's actually a pretty big thing here in Nashville. There's kolachi food trucks. So thank you so much
