1 5-6 lb. whole turkey breast
Preheat oven to 325 degress. Wash turkey breast thoroughly and set aside on a plate to come almost to room temperature; Pat the turkey dry with paper towels. Pack onion, celery, and carrot into cavity. Place loosely wadded 12x12-inch piece of foil in entrance to cavity to prevent the turikey breast from toppling over in the oven. Place turkey breast on a rack in roasting pan, breast side up.
In a small bowl, combine all seasonings and butter in a small bowl and microwave on high about 30-40 seconds (or heat in small saucepan until butter is melted). Mix well and use a pastry brush to "paint" the mixture all over top and sides of turkey breat.
Cover with foil "tent" and pour about 1-1/2 cups water into the bottom of the roasting pan. Roast 1-1/2 hours. Remove the foil tent and roast 45-60 minutes longer. or until meat registers 160 degrees on an instant-read meat thermometer.
Remove the turkey breast fropm the oven and re-cover it with the foil tent. Let stand at least 30 minutes before carving.
