It is so inexpensive I wouldn't bother. You can get a box of the mix for just a few dollars. For an easy hot breakfast you could try some of the heat and serve iced cinnamon rolls. They have some in the refrigerated biscuit section (near the butter) that need to be baked on a cookie sheet and some frozen ones in the freezer section that come in a foil pan. So yummy!

Yeah, if you're game to cook, get a box of Bisquick. Make some Bisquick biscuits and have with butter & jelly or honey. Get a box of the Jimmy Dean precooked sausage patties and brown them up in a skillet (love those! they should be in the refrigerator case with the lunch meats, etc.).

Froot Loops and Cap'n Crunch are my favorites of the "fun" cereals.

Here in the states, you will find several boxed pancake mixes that are "just add water". They make good pancakes, too. You'll find them in the same vicinity as the Aunt Jemima syrup.

My boys prefer Hot Pockets to the Jimmy Dean sandwiches. Read labels as there are many varieties. Two kinds: Egg, ham and cheese and the egg, bacon and cheese, are always in our freezer. Microwave and carry them along if you'd like. They are in the frozen breakfast food section of the grocery store.

Frosted Strawberry PopTarts...In the northern parts of the States, WalMart stores actually beef up their supplies of them if a blizzard is in the forecast.

+1 on Sister Schuberts, they're delicious.
+1 on bagels and cream cheese as well.

Buttermilk biscuits are also very American (and Southern) - there are many kinds that come in a cardboard tube that you can bake yourself - fresher than frozen and just as easy. Put eggs and a meat on them (and cheese) for a sandwich.

Pancakes and syrup for sure... if you want some GOOD syrup look for Vermont Maple. Comes in an opaque, squat plastic jug or perhaps a glass flask-type container, and is much more expensive than Aunt Jemima but you will never go back once you've tried it! Made in the US with pride.

Pop tarts are a good and quick breakfast, but LOTS of sugar. Cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc.

I'm gluten free so usually my breakfasts look like eggs, a meat, and maybe a potato or GF toast, but that's still pretty American-ish.

This made me smile, we recently traveled to Austria and it was my first time overseas. I thought the European breakfast was the BEST thing ever and I was kind of over American breakfast once we got back!! I guess the grass is always greener. Hope you enjoy your trip!

Can't go wrong with some Krispy Kreme doughnuts if you don't care about the health aspects. Don't forget to throw them in the microwave for a few seconds!

When staying at OKW, I prefer to just dump bowls of grits down my throat.

Bisquick has shake & pour pancake mix, it comes in a jug, take cap off add water put cap back on & shake. You just pour the batter, no clean up we use it on vacation all the time. Jimmy Dean sandwiches are easy & great but I will say they cook better when thawed first we keep them in the fridge not freezer. Fruit & greek yogurt nice breakfast too

Being a Brit too, I can relate to this - we sooooo love being an American Family

Mine like Eggo Waffles and corn dogs!

That said we will still end up taking weetabix for DD3

American breakfast...

Pop-tarts: They come in a gazillion flavors. I don't know about Wolverhampton, but in Nottingham we can only buy strawberry. I miss frosted brown sugar cinnamon desperately.

Bacon: It's different in the States. IMHO bacon in the UK is breakfast ham in the US and bacon in the US is not really available in the UK. If you've not had it, you must try it. I like mine very crispy.

Sausage gravy and biscuits: Very American (specifically, southern American). American biscuits are also not really available in the UK. They are fantastic, either with jam or with sausage gravy. It's easy to make and you can readily find recipes online. You can buy refrigerated biscuits from Pillsbury that you just bake in the oven.

Cereal: It sounds boring, but there are a whole range of types and flavors available in the US that aren't offered in the UK. And it is cheap. Lucky Charms is 5 pounds a box at our local Tesco (about $7.50) and would be $3.00 at Wal-Mart in the States. And there is NO Wheetabix.

Have fun!
