There actually are a lot of recipes you can make that are excellent for meat eaters, using subs such as Yves ground round instead of ground beef, for example. Like chili bean macaroni, I usually use the recipe from Vegan Vittles and add tomato sauce, using the ground round my husband really likes it.

You can also make excellent lasagne using the same product, Yves ground round, and the same product in Bryanna's excellent chili recipe, the one that takes four hours but is so easy to make. Everybody I have made that for loves it.

I would stick with product such as this rather than tempeh, for example, tempeh is one of those things that takes a bit getting used to. The commercial products that mimic meat tend to be quite a bit more "realistic," therefore, easier for transitioning.

Interestingly, the only time I use these products anymore is when I'm cooking for someone like my husband or some other omnivore. I have gotten to where I love the taste of fresh, mostly unprocessed fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. It really does take time but your tastes change so much over time if you keep this up.
