    So lately me and my friends on here have been having a long debate about what defines a sandwich and a burger 

    I say it’s the contents inbetween the bread that define it, not the bread itself

    Pimpchu and his imbeciles say it’s the bread that defines a burger and a sandwich

    ive never ate a chicken burger but I’ve ate chicken sandwiches which are made with buns. Therefore chicken cannot be a burger only a sandwich. The meat defines if it’s a burger or a sandwich.

    The shape. 

    Burgers are circular, sandwiches can have any other odd shape:
    Triangular, quadratic, long and elliptical,...

    Okay this is a respectable and different answer that I can get behind. My stance still is tho that the bread that surrounds the contents inbetween isn’t the deciding factor but the meat itself is what decides it.

    I've had both chicken burgers and chicken sandwiches, and I can confidently say that burgers are a subset of sandwiches

    In that case, it's the bread, because the bread defines the shape :-)

    So if you have a lunch meat sandwich. Just your basic lunch meats. And substitute the bread for a bun, it’s no longer a sandwich but it becomes a lunch meat burger?

    If I decide to put a kotlet between 2 breads it won't suddenly become a burger now will it? Even though kotlet meat is awfully similar to burger patty. 

    Burger is defined by the bread.

    Would become a lunch meat roll. Burger is pretty unique, I suppose it's a combination of meat and bread.

    I’ve had cheeseburgers with regular bread and not buns before when I’ve ran out of buns, it never made it a sandwich in my eyes because the burger is the meat itself not the bread you choose to surround it with. To each their own tho I guess

    this argument has gone on too far to the point we now have someone in discord calling Burritos a sandwich

    It's both the meat and the bread.

    You can't take the meat of a beef burger and stick it between 2 pieces of sliced bread and say that's a 'burger'.
    I would call it a beef burger sandwich.

    Similarly, you can't take the contents of, say, and egg salad sandwich and put it in a burger bun and claim its an egg burger...

    Absolute madness xD

    I feel like this is different across all regions and languages. In discord we’ve shown screenshots of our McDonald’s menus and what’s considered/labeled as sandwiches over here is labeled as burgers for them. So in reality I guess we’re all wrong and or right based on where you live

    So lately me and my friends on here have been having a long debate about what defines a sandwich and a burger

    I say it’s the contents inbetween the bread that define it, not the bread itself

    Pimpchu and his imbeciles say it’s the bread that defines a burger and a sandwich

    ive never ate a chicken burger but I’ve ate chicken sandwiches which are made with buns. Therefore chicken cannot be a burger only a sandwich. The meat defines if it’s a burger or a sandwich.
    Very simple method to determine this:

    Are you american or eating a product created by an american company? Yes? Stay confused and call them both things depending on your mood. Sorry McDonalds, but that "McChicken Sandwich" is a chicken burger. Having some idiot customers complaining when you first started doing something different to the original beef burgers that "this chicken burger aint got no beef in it, how can you call this a burger?" and folding to "the customer is always right, even when stupid and wrong, lets call it a sandwich" does not change anything.
    (And yes, stupid customers do cause these things... look at the chains who had to start calling their 1/2 pound burgers "double quarter pounders" because people would see the 1/2 and 1/4 and think "2 is smaller than 4, why would I want a smaller burger?" The same thing when they tried doing a 1/3 pound burger and them thinking it would be smaller than the 1/4... Cmon dude, really?)

    Anywhere else in the world - Is the filling formed into a patty and cooked rather than slices of some pre-cooked filling and then put between two halves of a bun while the patty is still hot? Yes? It is a burger. Doesn't matter if that patty is meat, chicken, vegetables etc.
    (This is why a hot dog isn't a burger, a sausage isn't a patty - and it isn't a sandwich because the bun isn't cut into halves. I'll leave the "is a hot dog a taco" discussion for another thread)

    Not using a bun, or chopping up the patty before putting it into something else, then depending on how you prepare and serve it is either a sandwich, toasted sandwich, melt, muffin, wrap, whatever.


    So the TL;DR of that - it is down to BOTH the meat AND the bread...

    Edit: Now I want a burger :(

    If it’s inbetween 2 slices of bread, it’s a sandwhich!
    If it’s inbetween 2 buns, it’s a burger!
