Located in Clarkston, Michigan, we found a feast like no church supper we’d ever had.
Clarkston Union offers American comfort food on Main Street America from an 1840s building that was once a church.
A tangy version of their award-wining dish, where the Penne Rigate ridges add texture to the plate. In the lobster version, they combine the bechamel with pepper jack cheese.
My dish had lobster in every forkful of this creamy dish. A seasonal vegetable medley of corn, squash, onions, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes completed the entrée.
Our version was something original, featuring hotlink, bratwurst, kielbasa, jack cheese, peppers, onions, sauerkraut, and accented with a whole grain mustard sauce.
Think spicy brown mustard versus the bright yellow stuff you find on a hotdog. They’d added some other ingredients to turn it into a sauce and drizzled it on judiciously.
Our dessert selection was a shared plate of three profiteroles— filled with vanilla, chocolate, and salted caramel finished with a mound of whipped cream, topped with a cherry.
Housemade chocolate sauce surrounds each pretty profiterole, and one even is brushed with edible gold.
