1 bone in turkey breast (5 - 6) pounds
1 can (14.75 oz.) turkey gravy
1 C. water
2 T. Dijon mustard
1/2 t. dried oregano leaves
1/2 t. dried basil leaves

Preheat oven to 325. Rinse turkey with cold water; pat dry. Trim excess fat, if necessary. Place, breast-side up, in a roaster pan with rack.
Juice lemon; pour juice into small batter bowl. Add remaining
ingredients; mix well. Pour gravy mixture over turkey, coating well.
Bake 30 minutes; baste turkey with pan juices. Continue baking 2 hours, 30 minutes to 3 hours, basting every 30 minutes until meat registers 170° F. in thickest part of turkey breast and juices run clear.
For gravy, strain pan juices; skim off fat, if necessary. Carve turkey into slices after turkey has rested 15 minutes. Serve with gravy.
