What do you call it?
It sounds funny to me and I am tempted to buck the trend and just call this a gluten free stuffing. Are you okay with that?

You can use any bread to make this gluten free dressing recipe! Now I am not too sure about sweet raisin bread, but you can use multigrain bread, white bread, bagels, etc.

For this recipe, you can make this easy gluten free stuffing recipe ahead. I made this a few hours before baking without a problem. You do want to keep it refrigerated because it is made with chicken broth.
