Easiest Sushi Bake Recipe

Baked… sushi? Yes, you heard that right.

People are always coming up with new ways to eat food. But this recent innovation, sushi bake, actually works. Sushi Bake is basically like a sushi casserole. The best part is the crispy top layer where all the flavors from the toppings come together.

Making this is so easy! All you need to do is layer the ingredients, pop it in the oven, and you’re all set! You’ll be wondering why you haven’t made it sooner.
