  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Cut bacon into 1/4-inch thick strips (lardons).
  2. Step 2

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon lardons and cook until crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove skillet from the heat and transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve bacon drippings in the skillet.
  3. Step 3

    Place Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with some of the bacon drippings and toss to coat.
  4. Step 4

    Roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until Brussels sprouts are a little charred, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    While the Brussels sprouts are cooking, heat the skillet with the remaining bacon drippings over medium heat. Add onions and saute slowly until caramelized, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Remove Brussels sprouts from the oven and add to the skillet with corn and thyme. Stir until combined and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
