Running Recallbox on external SSD via USB??

I have a 1TB SSD that I wanted to use in a NasPi case. In case that you didn't know, the NasPi cases use SSDs as primary storage. Is there any way that I can run the most recent version of Recallbox on a USB-connected solid state drive (SSD) instead of a MicroSD card? NasPi cases use them.
Please reply in English. I'm an American.

Yes, you definitely can.
Use Raspberry Pi Imager to write Recalbox directly to ssd.
Then use an sd card to write the bios options to boot from usb ssd (from the same raspberry pi imager, choose misc utility images -> bootloader -> usb boot)
Boot the Raspberry pi from sd card once until the screen goes green.
Then insert ssd and boot recalbox from it.

@ScottCE9 I did something different with my Raspberry pi 4:
Raspberry Pi 4Firmware update
Install Raspberry Pi OS on a SD card and boot. Update the OS, which will update the firmware as well (do it via terminal).
Flash the SSD with the Recalbox
Mount the ssd on your pc and change an option in a file named cmdline.txt in RECALBOX partition:
Install the SSD on your NesPi 4 case and enjoy!
Hope that works for you too!
