    To a hamburger, lettuce is a topping, mustard is a condiment. You can spread a condiment, not lettuce. 

  • A topping is much more vague, and can include anything you add onto the base. Breadcrumbs, pizza toppings, lettuce, etc.

    Condiments are usually sauce specific, but can include small salad-like foods like gremolata, chutney, whole grain mustard, etc.

    With regards to hot dogs and hamburgers, condiments usually refers to ketchup, mustard and mayo. Toppings or trimmings are usually veggies, such as lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, and so forth.

    If you can squeeze it out of a bottle or spread it with a knife, it's probably a condiment. If you have to sprinkle it on with a spoon, it's a topping.

    Condiments are like sauces. Ketchup. Mustard. 

    Toppings are solid things like nuts and fruit. Pepperoni and sausage.
