  2. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it apart with a spoon as it cooks.

  3. Drain any excess fat, if desired.

  4. Lower the heat to medium and add the cream cheese, stirring until it melts and blends with the beef.

  5. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme. Mix well to combine all the flavors.

  6. Optional: Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and cover the skillet until the cheese melts.
