Grand Marnier Turkey

"Here's another turkey recipe that I have made in the past. I didn't actually use the cooking bag, but used a large roaster with a vent in the lid. I did need to add a little liquid to the bottom of the pan to deglaze the yummy parts that stuck to the pan. DH liked it which was surprising, because he is a true believer that a turkey isn't worth making if it isn't stuffed with a bread stuffing, lol."
