- Een lange boterham = literally a long sandwich.
So this does not mean a tall sandwich like a Club or a Dagwood. That would be referred to as een hoge boterham, although that would not be a commonly used term. Lang meaning tall is typically only used for people and not objects.
You don't add an "e" to the adjective when the noun is of the neuter gender (a "het" word) and you are using the indefinite article. In this case, boterham is a "de" word, so you still add an "e" to the adjective after using the indefinite article.
So it would be "Dat is een lange boterham", but "Dat is een lang kind".
