And using the method I’ve always used myself.  So only difference with mine is cutting into wedges. I always cut in half. I went with smaller to shorten cooking time. And I’ve never used rosemary.  Well , since I have a rosemary plant looking at me…
In mine I added a squeeze of fresh orange juice (those are looking at me too, fresh on tree). And a little dash each of pumpkin spice & cinnamon 😀
I usually top with bacon but skipping that for thanksgiving dinner.
