I'm sorry, but hot dogs are NOT sandwiches. Hot dogs are not serves between two pieces of bread, but rather nestled inside of one bun. At best, their composition is similar, I think, to a taco. One tortilla (bun) folded (cut) and wrapped around the meat. A court in Boston* has even said that quesadillas, burritos, and tacos (and by extension, hot dogs) are not sandwiches, since they need at least two pieces of bread to be called a sandwich.

*I'd link to the actual article, but it's behind a paywall.

They are technically both... They are sandwiched between a bun and the same bun.

You see, that's where I disagree. If you are lying on a blanket, and someone folds it over you, you are not sandwiched between the blanket. There's only one blanket. You're nestled inside of it. Or wrapped up in it. But not between it.

A hot dog bun is just a really thick, bread-based blanket.

They can definitely be sandwiches. Sometimes, I cut two hot dogs partially in half and stick them between to slices of bread with whatever condiments I feel like. Are they not sandwiches?

They can be sandwiches, as long as they are between two or more pieces of bread. If they are nestled into a crevice of a bun, or a crevice of a cut hot dog, they are not sandwiches
