In a small saucepan, cover the eggs with 1 inch of cold water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and let sit for 7 minutes to finish cooking. Peel the eggs and chop in ¼-inch slices. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, chives, and Pecorino cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread the eggs out on 1 slice of sourdough bread, then drizzle with the mayonnaise mixture. On the other slice, spread the red pepper spread, if using, and top with lettuce. Garnish each slice with chives and Pecorino cheese, then serve together as a sandwich, or separate.
