Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon

I found a recipe for Brussels sprouts that used pancetta, but I'm just not a big fan.  We used hickory smoked bacon instead and loved it.  Doesn't bacon just make almost anything taste better?

Preheat the oven to 450.  Steam the Brussels sprouts for about 5 minutes in the microwave.  Meanwhile, heat a cast iron skillet and cook the bacon.  Remove the bacon, leaving some of the grease behind.  Slice each sprout lengthwise and place in the skillet.  Roast for 15 minutes, flipping them over after 10 minutes.  Before serving, add crumbled bacon and sprinkle with cider vinegar.
