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

  • $\begingroup$ @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? $\endgroup$ Aug 23, 2018 at 22:35
  • $\begingroup$ Your answer is correct but Con is not the word I intended $\endgroup$
