How to Store Brussels Sprouts: remove from stalk and keep in bag in fridge. Use within 1-2 days for best sweet fresh taste, will keep for several more days and can be cooked with garlic/capers/anchovies etc strong flavors to mask the stronger cabbage notes when stored for longer times. Also: by removing them from the stalk (with just your fingers! snap them off: it's quick), you can store them in the fridge easier. Don't leave them out on the counter: they will go bad/cabbagey really fast that way.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Browned Onions from Chef Jonathan Miller
Everyone loves brussels sprouts with bacon. Here's my version.

1 stalk brussels sprouts
olive oil
1/4 pound bacon
1 large onion
Heat the oven to 425. Strip the brussels sprouts off the stalk. Halve the Brussels sprouts lengthwise. Toss with a few tablespoons olive oil and some salt directly on a sheet pan. Peel your onions and slice them in half, then thinly crosswise. Slice the bacon into half inch pieces.

Roast the sprouts in the oven until lightly colored and crispy on their edges, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Heat a large skillet and cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and pour off all but a couple tablespoons of the fat. Add the sliced onions to the bacon fat in the skillet and sauté briskly until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir regularly to make sure they brown evenly. Remove from heat.

Combine the browned onions with the Brussels sprouts and the crisped bacon. Taste to make sure you like it, adjusting seasonings as necessary.
