In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, saute the onions in 2 Tbsp butter over medium-high heat. When the onions start to soften, add the garlic, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. Add half the collards and stir until they begin to reduce in volume. Mix in the remainder of the collards and stir until they begin to wilt. Stir in the black-eyed peas, white wine vinegar and stock. Let simmer over medium heat until the liquid begins to reduce in volume. Preheat oven to 450F.
While the collard mixture is simmering, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl. Rub in the remaining 3 Tbsp of butter. Add the milk and stir until combined. Drop large spoonfuls (approximately a scant 1/4 c.) on top of the collard mixture. Place skillet in oven and bake 12-15 minutes.
