1/2 Photos of Elegant Turkey Stuffing
The orange-flavored liqueur, spicy Italian sausage, apples, and pecans make this dressing distinctive from all others. It is very easy to prepare and goes with any dish. This recipe makes enough to stuff one 18 to 20 pound bird. If you prefer, this dressing can be made with thyme instead of sage. Time is for making the stuffing only, it doesn't include the the time in the bird or oven baking as that varies so much.
