Double-decker (vs. triple-decker) sandwich

In Definally on May 16, 2011 at 10:00 am

A sandwich—a club sandwich, for example, or the Big Mac—that has three pieces of bread with two layers of fillings (each layer between a pair of slices of bread) is a double-decker sandwich. Each bread-with-filling-atop-it is one deck. The top piece of bread does not a deck make.

A triple-decker sandwich, therefore, has four slices of bread, with fillings between the slices.

In short, the number of decks is one less than the number of slices of bread. (Unless it’s an open-faced sandwich, in which case the numbers will be the same.)
