    About this recipe: The distinctiveness of this turkey stuffing comes from the orange liqueur, spicy Italian sausage, apples and pecans. It's also very easy to prepare. This stuffing recipe makes enough to stuff one 9 to 10kg bird. If you prefer, this stuffing can be made with thyme instead of sage.

    • 350ml orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
