Seared Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

I think of Brussels sprouts as a fall/winter vegetable. Apparently SP does not since he came home from Costco with a 2 lb bag of them. I've enjoyed the sprouts I've eaten in restaurants but never much liked the ones we make at home. To make me more enthusiastic about eating all the Brussels, he suggested we try the Seared Brussels Sprouts with Bacon from The Food Lab Cookbook.
I agreed (bacon!) but then lost my enthusiasm after I prepped the little monsters. Maybe it was just this bag, but gosh they were huge and it was tough to chop off the bottoms and slice through the middle. That was my job while he cleaned the bathroom. I guess I got the better end of the deal, but prepping these did not make me like them. On the plus side, this recipe is quick & easy. These were good but ultimately, they're still Brussels and just not one of my favorite vegetables. Proof that bacon does not make everything better. SP loves them.

*It's possible we should have par-cooked them since they were large. Next time.
