Bacon-Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Elle’s mom sent this recipe after finding it in an old recipe book for cast iron pan cooking.  It is a great side and another variation on Brussels & Bacon!
2 slices bacon, thinly sliced crosswise       
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes     
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
1/2 cup thin wedges red onion
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tsp salt
