As far as a site that lets you search based on an ingredient list (like Supercook.com does for recipes - love that site), I'm not familiar with one. For something like that to be successful, it would need some good fuzzy logic on the malt side. Otherwise if you had something like Maris Otter on hand, it might not return recipes that use "UK Pale Ale malt", etc.

That's a shame. How cool would it be if there was a more reliable resource like supercook.

I just saw that the new search function in Brewer's Friend lets you include "Fermentables", "Hops", "Yeast" and "Other" in your search criteria. I'm not generally a big fan of public recipe sites like that, because there's a large signal-to-noise ratio in finding a good recipe. But it's certainly a good way to go idea-mining.

For example, entering Midnight Wheat and Centennial gives a lot of Black IPA recipes. If you're looking to see what others are doing with a certain ingredient this is a decent way to search.

Does anyone know of a resource where I can input my on-hand ingredients and a list of suggested recipes will be generated?

You might have reacted a bit too quickly on the lager yeast, but the U.S.-05 should work out fine for a tossed together brew. For what it is worth, you can stress the US-05 by fermenting really low - it threw off clove when I tried a cream ale in the 40's....I did not believe it at first, so I re-brewed and it did it again.  Only 2 data points, but stay in the 50's and you should not have a problem.
