Question about turkey roasting for a turkey-cooking newbie.

I am gonna have some people over for a post-Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving-esque meal. I don't eat meat, but cook it for others. I want to make a tofurkey for the non-meat eaters and myself, and I plan on using this
recipe, since I've had great success with it in the past. I was planning on getting turkey breast, and making an extra large batch or the cherry-onion sauce to use on the turkey as well as the tofurkey.
I understand that the Turkey is going to take longer to roast than the tofurkey. Can I use the same method? Can I foil wrap the turkey breast with the sauce and then roast it uncovered for the last ten minutes or so? Any recipe I see for roast turkey breast with sauce calls for roasting the turkey first, then adding sauce later. Is there a reason it shouldn't roast with the sauce?
Any advice on turkey breast roasting is welcome.
