  4. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. Place mirepoix ingredients in a large roasting pan and place marinated turkey breasts on top.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 375 degrees for 2-1/2 hours.
  6. Remove cover and bake at 450 degrees for 1 hour or until done. (The juice from the breast center should be clear.) For nicely moist turkey breasts, a meat thermometer should register no more than 175 degrees F.
  7. Use drippings from pan to make gravy. First, skim off any fat. Then puree vegetables and juice.
