A hot dog would be a sandwich according to that definition. This is where I think it gets murky.

A sandwich is a food typically consisting of vegetables, sliced cheese or meat, placed on or between slices of bread, or more generally any dish wherein bread serves as a container or wrapper for another food type.

those are buns

all buns are bread but not all bread are buns

erring on the side of not a sandwich until we can define sandwich bread better

Back in the day "loading the dishwasher" meant buying mom a box of wine.

Technically, yes. And so is a hot dog.

Corn dog... no.

Maybe a sandwich is a way to describe the style of food when it's traditionally prepared another way. So, a hot dog is traditionally in a bun anyway (or a taco in a shell/tortilla), so there is no need to order a hot dog sandwich - everyone knows what you mean when you say hot dog. Since turkey, however, can be prepared and served in so many different ways, you have to specify sandwich when communicating.
