You wouldn't describe a hamburger as a sandwich would you?


Yes, indeed. A hamburger IS a sandwich. In fact, any filling, between two or more pieces of bread, including a roll is a sandwich. Moreover, we , in the U.S. , have something called an "open face" sandwich. That is served thus. one or two slices of bread, placed on a large plate. Then meat, often Beef in gravy or turkey with gravy is placed on top of the bread. Often served with fries or mashed potatoes and a veggie.

Precision, my friend is critical in speech/writing. Below is a photo of rolls.. They are NOT sandwiches... yet. But could easily become sandwiches. Also, photo of a deep fried shrimp "Po Boy" SANDWICH.
If you came into my restaurant and asked for a roll, I'd serve you one of the first photo.
PS: Subway is a sandwich shop.

I'm with you here Bruce. In the UK a sandwich is two slices of bread with a filling between. But the idea of baps or any other soft rolls being used for sandwiches is creeping in - probably from the US, but it is also a term used for filled rolls in France and other European countries (they steal our word and then bastardise it!). We ordered sandwiches recently from a cafe at a lovely local beauty spot, and were served two huge soft baps. Nothing in the menu description to suggest this, which I thought odd.

Haha, yes there are so many varieties of rolls. And if they're split, buttered and filled with your favourite filling, they're all filled rolls, not sandwiches

The sandwich is named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, an eighteenth-century English aristocrat. It is said that he ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread.

In the UK and Australia, the term sandwich is more narrowly defined than in the US: it refers usually to an item which uses sliced bread from a loaf. An item with similar fillings, but using an entire bread roll cut horizontally in half, is generally referred to as a roll
