  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Line a sheet pan with some foil. Spread mushrooms on the pan, hollow-side facing up. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes to get them started cooking.
  3. Meanwhile, spread kale leaves out on a second sheet pan and toss with olive oil.
  4. Remove mushrooms from the oven and reduce oven temperature to 350F / 177C. (Note: If the mushrooms have released moisture while cooking, drain off excess water and use paper towels or dish towels to pat the mushrooms dry.)
  5. Crack an egg into each mushroom. Season the tops of the eggs with some salt and pepper.
  6. Transfer both sheet pans (mushrooms and kale leaves) to the oven and continue roasting until eggs are cooked to your liking and kale leaves are crisp. This should take about 6 to 8 minutes for both.
  7. Slice avocados.
  8. Sprinkle kale leaves with some salt right out of the oven.
  9. Serve mushrooms / eggs with avocado slices and salsa on top. Enjoy with kale leaves on the side.
