A sandwich is a type of food created by placing a portion of a meal in between two pieces of bread or a similar container, in order to make it edible by hand, eliminating the need to utensils to handle the food.
The term can also be used in a general sense to describe any type of substance that is contained between two layers of another substance. Scotty used the word sandwich to refer to the makeup of a piece of technology which was made of three layers of two materials, which caused the food synthesizer in the galley of the USS Enterprise to believe that he was requesting a meal. Scotty canceled the process by kicking the offending unit. (TOS novel: How Much for Just the Planet?)
