Sounds like someone has been watching Jas Townsend. Also let's not forget the classics of the US. Corn, Beans Rice and of course potatoes. These staples likely would make a huge bulk of any diet. There's also plenty of Soybeans that might survive meaning weirdly some local variants of Tofu and Miso might pop up. Peppers would be very common as well, they add flavor and are easy to grow. Hot pepper flakes might be a common additive to dishes.

As far as porridge goes, grits, polenta and other cornmeal dishes likely would become common. They might not use known varieties of dent corn(milling corn) but it's certainly not off the table. Another thing to keep in mind is white bread wouldn't be common. Good white flour is hard to make and takes good wheat and very fine milling/fining.
