    1. Preheat the Oven:
      Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
    2. Prepare the Turkey Breast:
      Lay the turkey breast flat on a clean surface. Using a sharp knife, butterfly the turkey breast by slicing it horizontally, leaving one long edge intact, so you can open it like a book.
    3. Season the Turkey:
      In a bowl, mix olive oil, minced garlic, chopped thyme, rosemary, sage, salt, black pepper, lemon zest, and juice. Spread this herb mixture evenly over the opened turkey breast.
    4. Roll and Tie the Turkey:
      Roll up the turkey breast tightly from one end to the other. Secure the roll by tying it with kitchen twine at regular intervals.
    5. Prepare the Vegetables:
      In a roasting pan, spread the chopped onion, carrot, and celery. Place the rolled and tied turkey breast on top of the vegetables.
    6. Roast the Turkey:
      Roast the turkey in the preheated oven for about 1 to 1.5 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 75°C (165°F) when measured with a meat thermometer. Baste the turkey with pan juices every 30 minutes to keep it moist.
    7. Rest and Carve:
      Once the turkey is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest on a cutting board, covered loosely with foil, for about 15 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a succulent roast.
    8. Make Gravy:
      While the turkey is resting, use the pan drippings and vegetables to make a flavorful gravy. Strain the pan juices, removing the solids, and then simmer them with a bit of flour and the chicken or vegetable broth until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    9. Carve and Serve:
      Remove the twine from the turkey roll and slice it into rounds. Serve the sliced turkey with the savory gravy and your favorite side dishes.
    Pro Tips
    • Even Thickness: Aim for an even thickness when rolling the turkey breast for consistent cooking.
    • Flavor Infusion: Marinate the turkey in the herb mixture overnight for a deeper flavor infusion.
    • Perfect Roasting: Use a meat thermometer to ensure the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 75°C (165°F) for safe and juicy results.
    • Resting Period: Let the turkey rest before slicing; this ensures the juices redistribute, resulting in a moist roast.
    • Garnish Gracefully: Garnish the platter with additional fresh herbs and citrus slices for an elegant presentation.
