In brief: Yes, if...

Yes, but only if the meal weighs a lot.
1 pound of body fat is 3500 calories, which means you would have to consume a medial greater than 3500 calories to change the calories into body fat. You can also gain weight if you drink a lot of water, or consume a lot of salt since your body would then retain water.
