Up front I am really nasty

In the end I can be tasty

In the middle I serve the Lord

I am a riddle, that's kind of odd

What am I?

The only word that I can find that can fit this is

Conundrum

Up front I am really nasty

Cons can be quite nasty. Con men will steal your stuff, rob you blind, and you wouldn't even know about it. Or CO which is Carbon Monoxide

In the end I can be tasty

drums such as drumsticks are indeed quite tasty. Also, you can use rum here as well.

In the middle I serve the Lord

A nun

I am a riddle, that's kind of odd

Conundrum: A riddle in which a fanciful question is answered by a pun.

This is confusing to me

Conundrum: A paradoxical, insoluble, or difficult problem; a dilemma

  • $\begingroup$ everything except the up front clue. Although I like your argument on Con $\endgroup$ – DEEM Aug 23 '18 at 22:24
  • $\begingroup$ @DEEM Darn it, I really thought this was the answer. It worked so well with the title and the last line. So, all but the first clue is correct? $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Aug 23 '18 at 22:35
  • $\begingroup$ Your answer is correct but Con is not the word I intended $\endgroup$ – DEEM Aug 23 '18 at 22:47
  • $\begingroup$ @DEEM, okay thanks! I think I can figure it out. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Aug 23 '18 at 22:50
